Hi! I'm Jen


Welcome to my home on the information superhighway

Are you old enough to remember personal homepages? Yeah, this is one of those, but with fewer animated gifs than were typical in the late 90's. Anyway, here are a few things I think are cool:

Work
I like helping people build cool stuff. Somewhere along the line, I convinced someone to pay me for it. I'm a Developer Advocate for Google Cloud Platform. This gives me an opportunity to do silly things with lots of computers.
Roller Derby
If I'm not at my computer, I'm probably playing a sport that's kind of like moshing on roller skates, but with referees. It's called flat track roller derby, and it's awesome. I skate for the Peninsula Roller Girls of Redwood City, CA.
Astronomy
I think space is really neat. Lately I've been channeling my extra coding energy into Project PANOPTES. It's an open source project dedicated to education, citizen astronomy, and exoplanet discovery.
